Day 5

Glorious weather today! We visited Ballindalloch Castle in the morning, Loch Eileen in the afternoon and the Speyside Wildlife Hide in the evening. We got there at 20:30, waited for almost 2 hours before seeing at least 6 badgers, then, when we were 5 minutes from leaving we saw the Pine Marten at 23:40. It stayed feeding for 10 minutes - less than 2 metres from our hide! Well worth the wait!

Total number of species of bird seen or heard after day 5: 73
